This listing includes two sheets of 20 Wheels Postage Stamps each and one randomly chosen First Day Cover. These Stamps celebrate 50th anniversary of the Iconic Die-Cast Cars and showcase some of the classic toy car’s most outrageous designs. Arranged in diagonal rows, the 20 stamps showcase photographer Len Rizzi’s images of 10 Hot cars.
Each stamp features the name of the vehicle shown in one of the top corners. The iconic Wheels logo appears in the top right corner of the pane.
The miniature hot cars depicted are:
The aptly named Purple Passion (1990), a super sleek metallic purple and green model.
Equipped with a roof-mounted rocket, the Rocket-Bye-Baby (1971) is one of the most aggressive racers in Hot Cars history.
Perfect for Halloween, the spooky Rigor Motor (1994) is a coffin-shaped hot rod that is powered by a huge engine adorned with two skulls.
A spectacularly powerful version of a classic muscle car, the Rodger Dodger (1974) has a giant engine bursting out of its hood.

The Twin Mill (1969) is one of the most iconic Hot cars of all-time. The speed machine features dual big-block engines.
The distinctive Bone Shaker (2006) is a hot rod with a fierce-looking skull for a grille. The car has a massive short-block engine made to rattle your bones
